were a lot of family and friends of everyone who came out in spite of the heat to celebrate
their achievements which left quite a few people with standing room only spots.
There is so much pride and a bit of bittersweet mixed in.
Watching your little baby as they reach this milestone -seeing that they are so grown up now
and ready to head out into the world to find their place. Sigh.
Hard to believe they are that same little baby you held in your arms not so long ago.
I loved that Cullan and several of his really good friends
that he has had since 1st grade all sat together and walked in line together to get their diplomas.
I remember these guys when they were little 1st graders running around
and playing on the playground at school and here they are all grown up now-
some of them sporting beards now even.
and ready to go out into the world with big dreams and goals.
We were indoors much of it but the evening outside was wonderful.
